Barcelona’s fickle financial state has been well-documented by now. The Catalans have been shorthanded in recent transfer windows due to their significant debt burden and stringent constraints with the wage bill.

But since Joan Laporta has taken over the helm, Barcelona are slowly yet steadily making ground in their quest to restore financial stability.

La Liga lauds Barcelona’s measures

Now, SPORT have published a report claiming that La Liga is confident that Barcelona will be able to improve its financial situation in the coming years.

Thanks to measures implemented by Joan Laporta’s administration and the upcoming inauguration of the new Spotify Camp Nou, Barça can expect financial equilibrium soon enough.

La Liga cites several encouraging factors for Barcelona, including the squad’s cost being reduced from €670 to a little over €500 million, lower staff structure costs, and the expected boost in revenue from the new stadium.

Moreover, they also believe that once the new Camp Nou is operational, the Blaugranes will be able to significantly reduce their debt burden.

Reports have previously mentioned that the Catalans anticipate making an enormous €120 million a year from the renovated Camp Nou.

The plan is to reopen Camp Nou by November or December of this year, with the stadium predicted to operate at around 60% capacity.

Sacrifices might still be needed

President of La Liga Javier Tebas has already claimed in the past that Barcelona will be able to solve their financial situation by selling some of the top players the club possesses.

“They have two or three top players that they can sell. They sell them, and with that, they solve a big part of the program,” Tebas said in February.

With that, they can generate income that does not generate interest on debt, and with that, they can pay players,” he added.

While that may still be the case, it is still good news that Barcelona are in the right track to get past their financial woes.
